Reflections...





I (finally) got the tree down last weekend, and while I was un-decorating on a gray, rainy, perfectly awful, ugly day, I noticed something beautiful.


It made me stop and look... 




And smile.







So, like other times in the middle of something I am doing, I get distracted by a tiny treasure, a jewel there just for me to snap up...


With my camera.







All around us are little treasures like the lights I saw reflected in the windows on a perfectly awful gray day...


Do we take the time to notice...?

The reflections are beautiful. Did your house look bigger and brighter when you took the tree down? When mine came down, I noticed how much the windows needed to be cleaned, lol.

Hi Joni,
How's the blog makeover?
We all need to slow down and notice the beauty surrounding us. Great shot....
Enjoy your week. Linda

It was really a sad event after Christmas, and when we had to take the tree down. I will never forget that feeling, and im sure todays kids feel the same way like i did. Richard

I beat you by only a couple days, so don't feel bad, it was just hard to get caught up this year after a later then usual visit in Iowa and trying to get on top of everything again. I love the lights so I always put 1 string of white lights on my kitchen patio door for the rest of winter, not to Christmasy but makes me happy!
